Ardmore 11, 2008-2020, Ex Laphroaig Barrel 708513, 57.1% – Archives

It’s not entirely unique, but Ardmore seems to be the distillery that uses other distilleries’ casks most. And I’m not talking about bourbon casks being used in Scotland, but Scottish single malt distilleries’ casks being reused at other single malt … Continue reading

BTC #7: Glenburgie 1995-2016, 21yo, 54.1% – Archives

So far, I’ve not guessed one distillery correct, and only got points for age and region. On one day I got points for the ABV because it wasn’t a cask strength bottling and we were informed the lowest ABV in … Continue reading

Two other Archives: Glentauchers and Glen Keith

The ‘non-Speyside’ whiskies from the recent Archives release are a Glentauchers 1996 and a Glen Keith 1992. Obviously both are from the Speyside region, but they aren’t marked as an undisclosed Speyside distillery. Both are a bit weird in regards … Continue reading

Glen Keith 1992, 21yo, 51.5% – Archives (Fishes of Samoa)

Another Archives bottling from the Fishes of Samoa series. The guys at Whiskybase are using this label theme for quite a while, contrary to The Whisky Agency for example, who only have a theme for some four bottlings each time. … Continue reading

Ledaig 7yo, 2005, 62.8% – Archives, Fishes of Samoa

First things first. I have no experience with Ledaig from the 1970s. I do have some experience with Ledaig from the last 20 years or so. I do not like those whiskies. Every time I try one I hope that … Continue reading

Glenrothes 1988, 53% – Archives, Fishes of Samoa

Two more Archives samples to review. This is the second to last. I didn’t pick an order, I just randomly grabbed a sample from my bin. Of course, I selected the Archives first, since those were supplied by a company, … Continue reading

Bunnahabhain 1987, 50.2% – Archives, Fishes of Samoa

To follow up on yesterday’s cracking Deanston, I’m going through some more Archives bottlings until Friday. Today’s post goes to a 25 year old Bunnahabhain from a ‘Dark sherry cask’. Bunnahabhain is a distillery who’s product usually goes very well … Continue reading
